Compact but powerful- iPhone SE (2022)
All new iPhone SE 2022 is not just the fastest phone of the SE series but is even faster than iPhone 11. At a glance, this iPhone may give a vibe of the iPhone 8, but trust me, this iPhone is completely different from the inside. And one thing that I forgot to mention is this phone is also very user-friendly for people who are entering the iPhone family for the first time. So, let's take a look at what all things have been improved in this iPhone from its previous variant. #TWN
It is a bold statement, compact but powerful, but I am not making this statement without any grounds. iPhone SE 2022 contains the all-time fastest A-15 Bionic chip. Yes, I should have mentioned it in the specifications. I wasn't able to digest this news, and hence, I shared it as soon as I got a chance. I am shocked at how apple packed its best chipset in such a compact and budget-friendly phone. If you judge this phone by its looks, it may remind you of iPhone 8, but looks can be deceiving. From the inside, it is a brand-new iPhone, and unlike iPhone 8, it has those features that iPhone 8 lacks. Let’s take a look at how different this phone is from the iPhone 8 and what all things have been added to this phone since the launch of its previous model iPhone SE 2020.

iPhone SE 2022 Review
One thing that deserves our attention is when we unbox this phone, on the protective covering, we get all the markings, i.e., where are all the ports, where is the volume rocker, where is the power button, and where is a headphone jack (which does not exist in iPhone now). We can conclude that Apple is targeting first-time iPhone users (in other words, people who betrayed android). Even the iPhone SE 3rd generation does not come with a face id. We have a touch id instead. Let’s talk about the looks. This phone is very sleek and will fit right into your palm. It will give you a superb in-hand feel. This phone will remind you of the older iPhone 8.
iPhone SE 2022 is a beautiful phone that has beautifully curved aluminum edges and has a premier look with an all-glass back design and the Apple logo. Apple phones are always premium. The display is a bit smaller than other iPhones; this phone has a 4.7 inches IPS Retina display, and the font will again remind you of iPhone 8. Its body might be of the iPhone 8, but from the inside, it is a different phone. This phone comes with the latest super chipset A-15 Bionic, which when you combine with the IOS 15, the experience is unimaginable. Apart from the A13 chipset, the rest of everything is very similar to a typical iPhone.
Regular iPhone users will find this Ui very familiar to their current iPhone. Let’s talk about the performance; well, this phone is fast, like really fast, whether it’s gaming or multitasking, this phone won’t disappoint in any aspect. This phone is the proper definition of speed. The Battery performance has also improved. Apple claims that the battery backup of this phone is equivalent to the iPhone 12 Mini, and with moderate usage, this phone can easily give you a battery backup of a day with a single charge. The stereo speakers will give you a brilliant audio experience. The audio quality is quite similar to that of the iPhone 11 pro.
Ok, now let’s talk about the camera; I know you all have been waiting for this as the camera is the most attractive feature of an iPhone; this phone has a 12 MP back camera, and we will witness a lot of new camera features like:- Deep fusion, new photography styles, Smart HDR 4, this camera also allows you to record 4k 60FPS videos. The photo quality is very similar to any iPhone. Anyone can recognize that the photos have been clicked from an iPhone. A front 7 MP Camera is also provided to you, which again clicks selfies like a typical iPhone.

Looking at all the features we can conclude that this is a long-lasting phone, this phone is targeting people who are not fond of changing phone now and then. Like we have seen in iPhone SE, which came out in 2016, is still functional today with IOS 15. SE series has always targeted the middle class, who sees the phone as a necessity and not as a luxury. With this phone, we get an advantage of the latest chip. Hence, in the upcoming five years, this phone will be fully functional, and all the updates will be available on this phone. Apart from being long-lasting, this phone is perfect for a person who is the first time getting introduced to the apple family. Overall, this iPhone is super-fast and super affordable.
